Good evening from 'The Dockyard'.

Well its been a couple of weeks since my last post. During that time whilst laying the mahogany decking on the lower deck, I noticed that some of the strips weren't as neat as they should of been, so I removed these and made some more. Plus I spent a few evenings not doing any modelling and just chilled, watching random stuff on YouTube.

Suffice to say that the mahogany decking is now complete on the lower deck with just the tiniest amount of trimming to do; should take a couple of hours next week to complete.

A bit more trimming of the strips around the water-tight ammunition canisters so they sit flush to the deck; although you can't tell from the attached photo.

A little trimming, possibly make another short length of mahogany strip to fit around the base of the Flak gun. You can't really tell from this photo, but it catches my eye, so i'll have to remedy that!LOL

Well that's it for this weeks update. As I mentioned before, a small bit of tidying up still required before I can say the lower deck mahogany planking is complete, but it's nearly there. I'm hoping the upper deck, with ease of access, will prove to be not so challenging. Watch this space!LOL

Thanks for looking in, have a great weekend and happy modelling!BigGrin Cool

That is so good. Your planking has gone on a treat and you have managed a very consistant spacing between the planks.

Hope your weekend goes well.

Thank you very much Tony. A tad fiddly and frustrating at times, but turned out well in the end.

Good afternoon from 'The Dockyard'.

Well, I've completed the fitting of the mahogany strips to the conning tower upper deck. See attached photo, which also shows the cut-outs for the water-tight ammunition canisters and flak guns.

Small brass dowels were fashioned from tubing and glued centrally into pre-drilled holes in the flak guns' bases.

The attached photo shows how the upper deck will look once the guns and canisters are fitted.

That concludes this weeks update. Next week I hope to blacken the mahogany strips as per the real thing and then sand these back to look worn. I also intend to get all the guns and canisters, for the upper and lower decks, painted, weathered and fitted!! Woop woop!!Love

Thanks for looking in, have a great and hopefully dry weekend and happy modelling!BigGrin Cool
